Ray Nelson Services Remains Open

Jamestown’s Third Street gas station across from City Hall remains open for business.

Ray Nelson Services, located at 215 E. Third St., Jamestown, is still providing gasoline and repair work for vehicles. The business is for sale by owner Ray Nelson. He said until it is sold, he will still be operating the business. The service station is open from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday.

“We’re an old-fashion service station,” he said. “We do lube jobs, change the oil, exhaust work, tune-ups and general repairs.”

Nelson has been located in downtown Jamestown for 31 years. He has operated a service station in the Jamestown area for the last 48 years. He had two previous locations, one on Foote Avenue and the other on Forest Avenue. Nelson said once the business is sold he will retire.

“I’m going to be 76 years old next month,” he said. “I got a farm, and I got four horses that I’m going to retrain.”
